This image carrying extremely disturbing message was posted on Twitter by a youth leader Ali Abbas Zaidi. The image apparently is a mobile phone repairing shop that carries an Arabic verse and multiple messages in Urdu language that read: “Caution: Qadianis (Ahmadis) are banned from entering.”
Ahmadis are members of Pakistan’s marginalized Ahmadiyya jamaat that was outlawed in Pakistan in 1974 following a National Assembly session that resolved to declare the community as non-Muslims. Ahmadiyya persecution is not new to the country. The Ahmadiyya community’s been subjected to state-sanctioned apartheid ever since.
